The Datsun 260Z was the second generation of 'Z' two-seat coupés produced by Nissan in Japan from 1975 to 1978. For the 260Z, the engine was enlarged over that of the 240Z with a longer stroke to 2.6 litres and increased the power output increased to 165bhp. 1974 brought for the first time to the S30 line a new 2+2 seating version, which offered room for four passengers and an extra 11.9” of wheelbase. These cars have a notably different roofline from the two-seat coupés, incorporating larger opening quarter panel windows. The 260Z claimed a few updates or improvements over the 240Z. The climate controls were more sensibly laid out and easier to work, and those cars with air conditioning now had the system integrated into the main climate control panel.
This 260Z has been imported into the UK from the US and is a rust-free example. Unusually for cars imported from America, there is a history file with this car confirming it is a good genuine well cared for example. Finished in blue with cream interior and fitted with automatic transmission, this lefthand drive Datsun runs and drives well. Now registered with the DVLA and supplied with a V5C registration document, a 260Z is a rewarding car to drive and a true useable classic. This sound example represents excellent value.
